In quite a shocking turn of events, Paris St-Germain’s Aminata Diallo was arrested this morning and is currently in local police custody for allegedly being involved in an attack on a teammate.
The previous night she was in the starting line-up as PSG defeated Read Madrid 4-0 in the Women’s Champions League on Tuesday.
In a statement, the club said they were working with police “to shed light on the facts”.
As well as strongly condemning “the violence committed,” the club also added they had “taken all the necessary measures to guarantee the health, well-being and safety of players” since the attack took place.
Reports in L’Equipe suggest that Kheira Hamraoui was allegedly dragged out of her car by two masked individuals who beat her legs. Her current condition is not currently known.
I wish I could share more but the details are understandably scarce at the time of writing and more information will no doubt be shared in the coming days and weeks.
